Eatnuts.com's Carlos Rodriquez shows ultra passion
It's Eanuts.com's honor to sponsor and support Carlos Rodriquez Saturday, January 31st, 2015 in the 23rd annual Rocky Racoon 100mi Ultra Distance Trail Running Championship. This type of race is also referred to as an ultramarathon or an ultra trail running race covering 100 miles.
This ultra distance trail running championship is put on by Altra and Tejas Trails and will take place in Huntsville, Texas. It attracts some of the fastest trail runners and the event was chosen for the 2015 USA 100 Mile Trail Championships. The runners of this championship will be traveling from all over the world to participate, and Tejas Trails and Eatnuts.com wants to ensure they receive the best Texas hospitality and experience.
We are so proud of Carlos for his commitment to take on this event. As you can only imagine, it takes a certain type of person to register for an event like this. It takes a person who's a little nutty, with a large commitment, a strong mind, and determination. We just know that Carlos is going to do amazingly and we are inspired by choosing to participate.
Along the trail, to support of the runners, there are several aid stations staffed by volunteers to ensure that their needs are met along the trail. Most volunteers are experienced trail runners themselves to ensure that they fully understand the runners needs for encouragement and sympathy. Each station has water and snacks to ensure that the racers have what they need to complete this race successfully.
The race starts at 6:00 am in the morning and has a 30-hour limit for completion. There will be a variety of winners, 1st/$1,000 2nd/$500 3rd/$300 Masters/$200. The main sponsors behind this Trail Running Championship are Hammer Nutrition, High Desert Drop Bags, The North Face Ultra Trail Du Mont Blanc, and Ultra Sports Live TV.
We are very excited to see how the event goes and to have all these guests in our hometown doing what they are passionate about. We are fully supporting Carlos 100% in his success in this race. We know he is going to do great and that he will continue to inspire those around him along his journey.
